R is for............................


There is an awful lot in our house!

Some in bits or being repaired

Some go for sale usually here  which is open to the public

Some decorate the house like this one.  This one has its own stand which is rare.
At the moment the stand is housing my vintage needlework magazines, well its an ideal safe place!

S is for.....................


We have urban seagulls.  
This morning I was woken by the squawking of seagulls instead of the dawn chorus!
This is my garden, the seagulls are munching on lunch put out for the garden birds.

They even sit on the bird feeder

I have been making things from seagull, they can be found here.........

My Amaryllis is in full bloom!

I have achieved four blooms all together.
Before when I have grown one of these I have had two blooms, they die down then I have another two blooms.  Never four at once!


Is that a fifth bud?
I hope it races against time and it opens before the others die down.

Just a chat.............

Its very foggy this morning, I walked round the garden to see if I could find a cobweb with it diamonds glittering.  The only time cobwebs can really be seen are on days like this with the dew hanging from its threads.  I find them fascinating.

The Primroses are in full blooms, they look so pretty in their bright yellow petals.

Do you remember this

There are four buds

I also revamped rewrote which is what I should have done in the first place my last post.  I have to admit I was in a bit of a hurry that day.  I should have taken my time and done it properly the next day!

Go here there is a beautiful give-away

A host, of golden daffodils

I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud 

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
An twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched the never-ending line
Along the margin of the bay.
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves besides them danced; but they
Out-did the sparling waves in glee:
A poet could not be gay,
I such a jocund company:
I gazed - and gazed - but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills.
And dances with daffodils.

William Wordsworth - 1804

Spring is in the air..........

“Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing.” 
― Kenneth GrahameThe Wind in the Willows

I made these three Daffodils.  
Today is the meteorological first day of spring.  Well according to the the weatherman, it is suppose to be spring!  Hope the sun will come out soon!
